Hoodoos are a strange geological rock formation found mainly in Bryce Canyon National Park, Colorado and the Badlands of South Dakota. Their formation consist of different layers of hard and soft sedimentary rock. Generally the hard layers being on top, erosion of the softer layers of rock gives them their strange unusual chimney or mushroom shapes. The size of the Hoodoos in the gallery range from a couple feet to about 50 feet and are located in Woodman Valley Park in Colorado Springs. One of formations in the area is called the Dutch Wedding Rock, which is not accessable due to being on private land. Hoodoos in Bryce Canyon National Park can be more than 100 feet tall.
